Spencer Kope "steps" into the Interrogation Room to clear up a few things about his Special Tracking Unit novels and latest release, WHISPERS OF THE DEAD. In addition to being an acclaimed author, Spencer works as a crime analyst for a Washington State Sheriff's Office and has been in that role since 2004. He's also served in the US Navy and worked in several roles for the Office of Naval Intelligence.

In this episode, Spencer and host Gavin Reese discuss his unique protagonist, Magnus "Steps" Craig, current touch DNA and the growth and use of related forensics, and the first murders solved by DNA, which inspired the nonfiction work, THE BLOODING, by the legendary Joseph Wambaugh.
